Accession:HP:0040262 term browser browse the term
Definition:Middle ear is filled with glue-like fluid instead of air.
Comment:In some contexts, glue ear is used interchangably with otitis media with effusion (OME) (PMID:21653931). Some authors use glue ear to refer to a subtype of OME characterized by thick, glue-like fluid buildup in the middle ear (mucoid otitis media) (PMID:10993548). Serous otitis media is usually responsive to medical treatment, whereas mucoid otitis media is not. This term refers to the mucoid subtype.
Synonyms:xref: MESH:D010034;   SNOMEDCT_US:78868004;   UMLS:C0029883
